Penisarlon is lovely campsite in Pistyll with absolutely stunning views and particularly of the evening sunset. Pods of Dolphins can be seen passing the bay below at times.
It can get busy during bank holidays so I would always advise booking a pitch before hand. Don’t get me wrong on the busy bit, the site owners won’t cram people in and that is precisely why I advise booking in advance.
Now before I tell you more about the site I would like to tell you why I chose this particular place to stay – location, its really good. Not too far down the Llyn Peninsla but close to everything in the area. Whether it be to Caernarfron or Pwllheli, Aberdaron or Whistling Sands (Porthor), they are only a short car trip away. Snowdonia and Anglesey are literally on the doorstep, or more precisely for me lots of places to go sea fishing. The site overlooks the old Pistyll Dock, a well known local fishing mark.
The site is well maintained with a small park for younger kids on the bottom field. There is also a small park across the road behind the row of houses. The bottom field has a communal fire pit and there are a few Chimnea style devices dotted around for you to use. The owners sell wood to burn for £3 a bag which is enough for a night.
There are several toilets and showers on the top end of the field, with a new recently added toilet/shower block which is nice and far superior to the others. There is no additional cost to use the showers as its all included in the camping price. £15 a night for tents and £20 for caravans.
Its a great place for kids too as the site has 2 resident donkeys and a pony, chickens , ducks and geese. They are a friendly enough bunch., the donkeys like a bit of grass as you walk by. Eggs can be purchased directly from the site for a small cost. Great views of the sea from all pitches, we have seen dolphins going past a few times now. The owners are friendly and more than welcoming. Only niggle is In places the road down is a little steep but nothing to worry about.
I have also added Penisarlon Farm camping under fishing venue as you can access Pystill Dock from the campsite.
There is also a cottage and house available to rent on site, really nicely set up too with plenty of room in both. https://www.penisarlonfarm.co.uk/
